forgotten that we are a nation of laws. >> stephanie: what is it just to seem tougher? >> i think lindsey graham was getting more information about his ties to al-qaeda. and on his hospital bed yesterday he said they are religious, but they don't have ties to any larger network. >> stephanie: yeah. exactly. that's what the fbi was saying initially. can i just say one of my favorite things is -- is the description -- because, you know, he was mad initially what he was tweeting was that you killed my brother. i think he actually killed his brother. >> that was a fake twitter account. >> stephanie: oh, okay. but, you know, that he was -- but i'm just saying that was -- i thought i was the only one that thought that that it was a little road runner he had explosives and he was run over by his brother and dragged like 30 feet and it just was -- i
don't know, somebody said he was holding an acme receipt, and i don't think so. my buddy howard kurz wrote the police and this is what i said about the plitttt -- chuck grassley rushed in to say he wants to exam immigration reform particularly in light of what happened last week in boston. this doesn't lend itself to a huge policy revamp. obviously newtown you can't compare that. yes, that was something that you go this is happening too often in america, we should do something about it. as tragic as the boston marathon bombing was, the first thought upon learning the suspects -- >> oh god.
>> stephanie: were the tsarnaev brothers attending school in the u.s., are that we are letting dangerous families in to the u.s. one brother would have been about 7 and the other 14 when they came to this country. the other brother was naturalized citizen, he isn't an illegal immigrant or a person who overstayed his visa. i heard rush limbaugh say by bi -- you can radicallize here in the united states ladies and gentlemen. i think that's he meant is all college professors are terrorists. >> there is always the internet. >> yes there's no such thing as a liberal terrorist. >> right. >> stephanie: let's be clear the vast majority of illegal immigrants living here are hispanics. a couple of allegedly murderous
chechnian brothers doesn't change that. and people are trying to blame obama because that's what they do with everything. >> sure. obama derangement syndrome. >> stephanie: even mitt romney praised the administration's response in boston. the carnage in downtown boston was a shock to us all, too bad some are already trying to exploit it.

to charge someone with weapons of mass destruction requires an impact on interstate commerce so if they hadn't shut down the t and basically all of the businesses in the city of boston, they would have been unable to make that argument. there's a supreme court case that wipes that out. so by locking everybody down and going over this sort of the over the top police action. they bolster their case. since massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty. one interesting fact there, though, wmv as it is defined in the 1994 violent crime and prevention act theme, is assault weapons. >> oh, really. >> stephanie: oh interesting. >> because they can cause mass

alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> do you think that there is any chance we'll see this president even say the words "carbon tax"? >> with an open mind... >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? >> ...and a distinctly

[ inaudible ] the last time the immigration law was changed, suddenly these two guys and these two guys alone offer some kind of proof we need to crack down to prevent this from
happening again. meanwhile we have a dead pile of bodies in the him layians. the second amendment can't be touched in any way, to do that is fashionism. and this is where the bush thing comes in. with regard to terrorism, these people live in fear of the next attack. because fear makes people think about death. this is how we lived under bush and cheney for years, the fear is basically what enabled iraq -- the iraq war to take place. public opinion didn't support the war at first, but once they got the public afraid, it was bombs away. conservatism can never be cleansed of its need to instill fear. it's how the conservative mind works. conservatives often do see enemies under every bed, that
doesn't mean they are there and most definitely doesn't mean we ought to make foreign policy based on their nightmares.

>> stephanie: exactly. and what better time to have matthew breen editor and chief of "the advocate" live in studio with us. >> hi. >> stephanie: if only the boy scouts of america could be quite as progressive as france. >> yeah, a very decisive statement. >> stephanie: they are apparently run by libras entirely. they cannot make a decision. salon has a great piece. the boy scouts fails yet again. it's not progressive or even compromise if you open up a whole big can of out right bigotry. let's try this again, boy scouts. >> they made a recommendation based on their study that they would no longer discriminate
against children who are gay based on their sexual orientation or preference as they say. but they are going to maintain their discriminatory policier about leadership. you cannot be a gay or lesbian den leader over 21 if you are openly gay. so when you are a child and you say you are gay, you are okay but as soon as you turn 21 you become a predator a child molester. >> especially a lesbian in charge of a bunch of boys. >> stephanie: right. what is more dangerous than that. what? let me just tell you, i couldn't be less interested in boys of any age. >> so i think we're agreeing with tony perkins.
he says it's morally acceptable until a boy turns 18 and then when he becomes of age he is removed from the scouted. so the volunteers around the country have to still vote on the policy. >> stephanie: it is weird the way that this whole -- salon says in january it announced it was potentially discussing changing it's restrictions -- it was like this exploratory -- now the scouts are taking further dodgy steps. they moved to end the ban on -- as you say even the language is way openly gay scouts but continue to bar gay scouts as leaders. it would open up all kinds of cans of worms. does it stand by its assertion that homosexual conduct is
against the standards they wish to -- >> do they ask for your eagle scout back on your birthday. >> stephanie: do they rip it off of your shoulder. >> that eagle looks gay to me. >> stephanie: even more grotesquely distinguishing between gay youth and adult leaders -- and tony perkins perkins -- salon writes lbgt rights aren't about injecting -- by the way being a normal human being living fully in the world isn't in politics either. >> and then tony perkins stabbed a woman in the shower. >> stephanie: no, not that tony
perkins perkins. >> oh. >> stephanie: this goes to your point -- that's exactly what the implication is. pedaphilia does not equate to homosexuality. >> and the boy scouts consulted some experts in this field. the ap reported that the scouts consulted four experts in the field of child sex abuse prevention. the four came to a nearly universal opinion that homosexually is not an abuse factor for children. but they still came to this opinion. >> we have no evidence but we
feel icky. >> stephanie: it's weird that a compromise just makes it worse. obviously as chris implied this has been such a huge news week and so what -- has there been any reaction that you know of. because obviously a lot of people not talking about this yet. >> yeah, there is bigger news that has been happening this week. putting out a press release or statement on a friday afternoon is always a way to try to bury it. but i don't think they anticipated as much news as we had this week, so i don't think that was part of the plan. but the interesting response will be corporate response. because that's where they have been losing so much money. >> stephanie: it will be interesting to see what happens at the supreme court and if that effects them. because i think it's
just -- even what they just did just seems so regressive. >> hand fisted and just ridiculous. >> stephanie: yeah. >> it's nice that ideally, gay youth will not be discriminate against in boy scouts i guess that's a good thing. but it's a weird step. >> stephanie: it's the argument to me matt about civil unions it's like why do you have to call it marriage like you are regular people? and to me it would have been as if we said that to blacks and whites. we'll let you do it but we're not going to call it marriage. >> yeah, we talk about the mormons and catholics give a lot of money to the scouts. religious organizations of all kinds come around when the law
prevents discrimination. so the supreme court may have an effect on this issue. hopefully it will. >> stephanie: yeah speaking of interracial marriage and some of the comparisons people have made. they were even talking about whether you believe that people are born gay or a sexual continuum, it says what difference was it make? were you born with a desire to sleep with another race or did you choose it, who cares? what difference should it make? >> that to me goes to the idea of if we're talking about marriage -- we often talk about it in these religious contexts. but really it's a contract between two adults, so why do we have all of these quasi religious ideas associated with it anyhow. if it is going to be administrated by the government
then it has to be separate from all of these ideas. bill donohue said marriage is not supposed to be fun for anybody. it's not about love happiness, none of that. and if you have any of that you are doing it wrong. tony in mod san, hi tony. >> caller: hi, steph. loved you in chicago. >> stephanie: thank you, baby. >> caller: yeah, and i look at "the advocate" every day. the boy scouts of america are such a hot mess -- >> stephanie: they are the delta gamma of organizations. >> caller: i'm 20 now and i came out when i was 15, if i was in the boy scouts, i still would have come out at 15 and when you turn 18 and you are going to become a pedophile that is just not going to work out. we are all going to be coming out younger now, because people
are going to accept it. the boy scouts have a lot of things that they have to deal with now, but this is just a joke. >> stephanie: yeah, and tony a lot of the things they use is some studies show that gay kids have a higher incidence of drug use, depression, but maybe if we are more inclusive as a society, they won't anymore. >> yeah. it has a clinical effect on you. >> it does. it's exhausting. >> somebody made an interesting comment about how if you wanted to stick to the boy scouts policy as it is being recommended right now, you could align yourself with the ex-gay policy you could be a gay scout until you turn 18, and then if you go back into the closet you could be a leader. >> stephanie: right. so marcus bachmann could be
